ULTIMATE GUIDE Veggie Gardening

11 September 2019

“I grow plants for many reasons: to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty, for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.” – David Hobson

You don't need a big plot of land and heavy machinery to get started - The veggie garden we have in mind needs very little space and don’t cost a lot to get started. And it's great for people who don’t have a lot of practice or confidence in gardening… or a lot of time. The workload is minimal, but the rewards are great, so give it try! GIY – Grow It Yourself!

All You Need is Fun (Well, almost!) #

In our ULTIMATE GUIDE Veggie Gardening we will walk with you step by step through the making of a backyard raised and potted herb and vegetable patch. Each step is documented and is designed in the hope that you will be able to replicate, or improve upon, what we have done. There are successes and failures, surprises and unexpected developments, and also solutions to the hiccups we encountered. The five steps we cover are:

Part 1 – Prepping:

Building a raised garden in a sunny corner of your lot – a great project for the cooler season.
